The Eagles are taking a chance that a former first-round pick will be able to help the team as a free agent addition.

The team announced on Thursday that they have signed guard Chance Warmack. Warmack became a free agent after spending the first four years of his career with the Titans.

Tennessee selected Warmack with the 10th overall pick of the 2013 draft and he started 46 games over his first three seasons, but he never developed into the kind of player that the Titans were hoping to see on the interior of their line. They declined to exercise their fifth-year option on his contract and Warmack missed 14 games last year after going on injured reserve with a hand injury,

There was some talk about the Eagles trading Allen Barbre, but nothing has developed on that front so he returns at guard along with Brandon Brooks, Stefan Wisniewski and 2016 third-round pick Isaac Seumalo.

  1. Depending on the price, this seems like a solid depth signing. I’d give him a chance to win the job opposite Brooks, but he’s not someone I’d pencil in as the starter

  2. He wasn’t very good. Point in case, he had a questionable hand injury last season. It was his choice to play through or have surgery……

  3. As a close friend of the organization, I have an arrangement with Eagles’ front office that allows me to buy tickets at face value…

  4. Well no player who came into the NFL and didn’t live up to the hype and was hoping changing teams would help him meet his potential has gotten a better opportunity to do it then Warmack just did.

    I say that because the Eagles run the exact same offensive line system that he thrived and became a star in at Alabama. They also have the guy who made him a star at Alabama, offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland, coaching the same position in Philadelphia.

    So if Chance Warmack is ever gonna be the player in the NFL that he was at Alabama, then there’s no better place to make it happen then on a team employing the guy and the system that helped make you that player.

    Conversely if he can’t cut it under perfect circumstances like that then he never will.
